Micro-P has bolstered its vendor stable by signing disaster-proof hardware vendor ioSafe.
The deal will see Micro-P distribute ioSafe's full range of fireproof and waterproof data storage products to its UK partner network.
Robb Moore, chief executive of ioSafe, said: "The vast majority of data from family photo albums sits vulnerable in local pockets all around the world. Because data growth exceeds internet bandwidth growth, data created locally will be forced to be stored locally.
"IoSafe technology provides a 'disaster plan-in-a-box' solution for terabytes of data wherever it sits vulnerable. Our backup hard disk and solid state drives, combined with our data recovery service protect not only against fires, floods and water damage, but hard drive failure and accidental deletion," he added. "We are hugely excited about bringing our technology to the UK and our partnership with Micro-P to deliver this solution to the masses."
Stuart Hatch, business manager at Micro-P, said: "We are delighted to welcome ioSafe on board. It is a fantastic addition to our increasing storage portfolio and gives our customers access to a solution that offers unbeatable protection for their data. Data storage is one of the fastest-growing categories in IT and we are seeing more and more interest in people not just looking at capacity, but also questioning their data recovery exposure. IoSafe addresses this head on.”
